Science toppers without coaching dream big


Ludhiana: The class 12 results declared by the Punjab School Education Board on Saturday brought smiles and relief to two girls,who were in the state’s top 10 list,and they achieved this without any coaching. “These days,students think that tuitions are vital to score well,but my family’s financial position did not allow me to take external coaching. However,I was determined to do well,” said Saloni,who topped the district in the non-medical stream with 94.89 per cent. She stood ninth in Punjab. A student of R S Model Senior Secondary School,Shastri Nagar,Saloni wants to pursue aeronautical engineering,but feels that her aim is too expensive for her family to afford. “My father is a salesman and mother a homemaker. I have decided to graduate in science from Government College for Girls,Ludhiana,and then prepare for the civil services examination,” Saloni added. Her classmate Sarita Khurana,who stood second in the district and 10th in Punjab in medical stream,too never took any tuitions. Her father runs a grocery shop and mother is a homemaker. “I want to pursue MBBS from AIIMS,but due to financial constraints I will try to get in Rajendra Medical College,Patiala. I never preferred tuitions,as I feel self-study is most satisfying”.
